About Strasbourg International Airport (SXB)


Address: Aeroport De Strasbourg International, Entzheim, 67960

One of the main gateways to the Alsace region of France, Strasbourg International Airport (SXB) is located 20 km (12 mi) southwest of central Strasbourg, in the city of Entzheim. Airport car rentals from Europcar, Sixt, Avis, and Hertz are located on the ground floor of the arrivals hall, just a few steps from the baggage claim carousel.

  Getting around

Despite the city of Strasbourg’s ungainly network of urban roads, getting around is relatively easy in a car hire equipped with GPS. The historic city center is situated on an islet (Grand Ile) in the river Ile, much of which is pedestrian-only. Numerous parking garages are found on the central outskirts, offering easy access to popular attractions on foot. Be advised that parking rates in central Strasbourg are significantly higher than outlying areas.

Greater Strasbourg is encircled by a ring road system consisting of three primary roads: Autoroute 25 (A25), European Road 52 (E52), and Avenue du Vosages (D263). From the Altstadt (Old City), the eastern border of the city stretches 4 km (2.5 mi) east to the river Rhine at the German border, while the western edge extends roughly 11 km (7 mi) to the town of Eksbolsheim.

The Alsace region’s curvy nature is dictated by the river topography. While roundabouts are common in Strasbourg, many major routes are connected by a unique looping traffic circle based primarily on right turns. Meanwhile, the bulk of routes within the ring road system are narrow one-way streets. Congestion during peak hours occurs throughout the city, but the bridge across the river to the German city of Kehl is particularly intense.

Getting out of Strasbourg is far easier than circling around the city streets, with major routes to destinations in all directions, including the German cities of Stuttgart (155 km / 93 mi) and Munich (373 km / 223 mi) to the east, Luxemborg (255 km / 153 mi) to the north, as well as Zurich, Switzerland (221 km / 132 mi) to the south.

  Choosing your car

Once you’ve decided to rent a car for your visit to Strasbourg, the pieces of your travel puzzle will quickly fall into place. If you’re planning to spend the majority of your time in the city, Renault minicars, Fiat compact and economy sedans were made for the cramped conditions of European inner city driving. Opel intermediate and Mercedes fullsize 4-door sedans are ideal for cruising the autoroutes and national roads. Meanwhile, explore the Alsatian countryside in a BMW SUV. For your own tour groups of 5 or more travelers, Volkswagen 7-9 seater minivans have plenty of room for people and baggage.
